So careful to please others, I like something. let me elaborate. I've just seen a movie, The Great Gatsby. You ask how it was. I liked it, I reply. I liked it because if you hated it Like is a mild word. And if it is your opinion that the Great Gatsby it the best movie ever made, then Like becomes Love. Like is the ultimate tester of water. Like is the verbal guinea pig of social interaction. I like you, you're cool. I like you, you're cute. I like you, you're beautiful. I love you, you're amazing. A neutral shield to cower behind. The terminal four-letter-word.
I like you.
